Security Promotes  Scientific Growth

Security Promotes Scientific Growth

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei highlighted the value and worth of the people's sense and feeling of security in the country, saying without it scientific progress through research and education would not be possible.
"If security were lacking, there would be no research, no university and no scientific progress," the Leader said. He made the remarks in a meeting with the elite in Tehran on Wednesday.
Referring to the brain drain from Iran of its educated youth over the past several  years, he said the elite should be cautious and not be lured by the illusion of a better life abroad.
"Instead of submitting yourself to the ruthless and greedy foreign societies, try to help bring prosperity to your country," he recommended those seeking a better life in other countries.
"Deciding to stay in the country to help overcome its weaknesses and serve [your own] people is a source of pride and honor," ISNA quoted him as saying.
Stressing the high potential and abilities of the youth, he said, "We should not be intimidated by the significant scientific and technological progress of western countries." Iran depends largely on its domestic capabilities and the "wise, dedicated and talented students are considered [its] greatest assets."
Emphasizing the role of university teachers and the academia in the development of the nation, he said only the teachers who feel duty-bound to help Iran make progress are loyal to revolutionary values.
Ayatollah Khamenei said knowledge-based firms should be supported to help successfully implement the policies of the "resistance economy," a set of principles outlined by him to wean the country off oil revenues and bolster domestic manufactures and investment.
He warned of attempts by those who aim "to create disillusionment among the people and belittle the country's scientific progress and remarkable achievements via the media."
